The COVID-19 pandemic and multiple natural and man-made disasters have required hospitals to activate their emergency preparedness plan. In anticipation of patient injury due to such disasters, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) revised the Emergency Preparedness Conditions of Participation for hospitals in 2020. This webinar will cover the CMS emergency preparedness regulations, including recent updates to emerging infectious diseases. All covered facilities are required to have a written program to address the various natural and man-made emergencies that may impact delivery of care and patient safety. This session will cover the required elements of compliance with CMS regulations, including mandatory testing and training of all personnel. There will also be a brief discussion of reference and resources from The Joint Commission.
